It's Christmas Time!

Following Tim's blog and recreating the Christmas tags he is making is quite inspiring, as you can find little bits of techniques that perhaps you had forgotten about, or even use stash that you have bought but never got round to using. Today's tag is simple but looks good, and anyone can do it, even me ! I do happen to have the stamps , although I think they are the smaller sizes. I am using one of our chipboard tags, as I do not have the ones he is using. I didn't have the right colour distress embossing colour so substituted frayed burlap. One tip, make sure that you SHAKE the bottle, and heat it longer than you think, as it is very hard to see if has melted. I absolutely loved the metal rose idea, and feel more coming on.


All the elements includint the idea-ology "stuff" for making this tag, are in the shop. I would love to see if you are making.. leave me a comment....

Well done! And I could not agree with you more: distress embossing powder is requires more effort and concentration! Love your metal rose. It came out very pretty! (SIGH, where does that man get his ideas..?? LOL)

It's wonderful. And I love how you're playing along but making it your own. Not having everything Tim has is certainly making us all more creative!

Can't wait to see your next one.
